A Midsummer Night’s Dream, one of Shakespeare’s best-loved plays, is a delightful fantasy involving four young lovers, a group of craftsmen turned actors, and a collection of mischievous fairies. The four lovers, Helena, Hermia, Lysander, and Demetrius, take to the forest at night entangled in a bewildering game of lust and longing as the amateur actors gather to rehearse a play, all while Oberon and Titania, powerful king and queen of the fairies engage each other in a battle of wills in which the mortals become unwittingly entangled.
